Sub panel next to Main Panel on exterior

I would like to install a subpanel next to the main panel which is on the exterior of my house. Can I use PVC flex to run the wires from the Main to the Sub? Or do I have to run into the ground from main and back up to sub which will only be about 6" away. I live in California if that means anything. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Thanks Speedy Petey, I appreciate the help. sch 80 PVC it is then. Just to be on the safe side. Can I come out of the side of the box or does it have to be from the top or bottom.

Yes.

If the concentric/eccentric knockouts are at all loose, remove them; then to get back to the size you need, use knockout reducer bushings which are much sturdier, one pair per hole.
